Check out the new favorites page in the top toolbar. If you’re looking for a quick list to choose from to get started, I would recommend choosing from that page. I tried to organize based on what would’ve helped me the most when I first started. These are all activities J enjoyed the most. I split up the top activities by age groups and then separated crafts from homemade toys/games. Remember that the age groups are generalizations, you will probably find activities that your little one could enjoy at an earlier age as well as activities that might need to wait for awhile. I have only one child to base my generalizations on!
My criteria for a “Favorite” is:
- lots of mileage.
- easy to implement
- easy to clean
- entertain for a realistic period of time
- cheap/worth the expense
- encourage development
Many are activities that I have heard other mom’s say say their little ones adored too.
I hope this helps streamline things a bit!
